With dirty blonde hair and piercing blue eyes, Hayley fascinates. She’s winsome, candid and smart. Smarter than us, in fact, regularly disarming us with conversation rather than with her obvious beauty. Spend any amount of time with her and she’ll have you feeling like you’re walking on sunshine.

Imagine being marooned on a deserted island with Marlie. Well, for this year’s shoot, we charted a plane to a remote valley on Hawaii’s Big Island. There, we were surrounded by nothing but a palm-fringed black sand beach and lush forrest backdrop. With a background of Taiwanese, Irish, Dutch, Czech, and English ethnicity, she was magnetic. Covering herself in mineral, she enabled us to capture her raw beauty against this barren paradise. It was here that she ruled the weathered landscape as any modern goddess would. This Scorpio is one castaway that we can't live without.
